    I’m all out of GTKY ideas so leaving some weekly threads for others to start. 😊Happy Monday, ladies!
  • It's very Monday today. Also, I forgot my wedding rings this morning at home and I keep looking for them and feel naked without them. Ugh.

  • Guys MAJOR recommendation - the miniseries Unbelievable on Netflix. Parts of the first two episodes are *very* disturbing and triggering (sexual assault) but it gets easier to watch and is seriously amazing. It has Toni Collette who I've loved forever and Merritt Wever (from Nurse Jackie and I think Godless?) who I wasn't that familiar with and both are incredible. They play two detectives and it's based on a true story. We were planning to watch one episode Friday night and ended up watching four, then binged the whole series over the weekend!!

  • @millpe oh no I'm so sorry that happened to you and I hope you're feeling better now.  My DH gets migraines and sometimes gets sick too... anyone who suffers from migraines or has someone close to them who does will totally understand.  Good luck tomorrow ❤

    @whitealbum29 I just finished binging that yesterday. I started to give up on it after that first episode. I kept yelling at my TV "this is why rapes and sexually assaults go unreported! FFS!" And then the next episode starts and I'm like "oh is this an anthology like Black mirror? They are just going to show you all the ways in which people present hard to believe stories or don't make a good witness and each episode is going to be a shit show of society further victimizing these women?" But I was so pleasantly surprised that isn't how it played out. I ended up really enjoying the series.

    I am now bringing the 3rd season of Victoria because I somehow haven't seen it yet and now it is included with Prime finally.

    ETA: @millpe sorry girl. I hope you feel better. Migraines are awful. I hope your coworkers can handle it like adults and not make it awkward. Like FFS everyone gets sick from time to time it shouldn't be a big deal. If they turn it into one I'm going to be super annoyed for you.

  • @kpearse99 I loved Boone Plantation. They filmed a bunch of The Notebook there. Also see Rainbow Row and eat near there. PS I love Southern Charm and if you do too, Google places mentioned in the show.
    It's funny how it's the little things in life that mean the most...not where you live, or what you drive, or the price tag on your clothes... There's no dollar sign on a piece of mind, this I've come to know! *ZBB*
